Our mission is to develop and maintain a livable, safe, and sustainable neighborhood. The PNA is working to conserve and improve the quality of life for residents in Pittsburgh, and to be good stewards to our neighbors, our community, new businesses, and the City of Atlanta.
The Pittsburgh Neighborhood Association (PNA) has a new board and a new attitude, and we’re working to prepare for a new era in Pittsburgh. The five hundred forty-four acres of our historic community is now surrounded by multi-million-dollar developments, and changes to our neighborhood can be seen on every street.
That means it’s more important than ever to let your voice be heard about what you want to see happen in Pittsburgh. Is it more affordable housing for our seniors? Do you want to see restaurants and coffee shops, and locally owned shops and stores selling things you want to buy? Do you want a new laundromat and dry cleaner?
Well, to get things done the way you want them done, you have to become community activists, and participate in the change. I’m inviting you to take a couple hours out of your morning every first Saturday of the month and come to our PNA meeting at the Pittman Park Recreation Center from 10 am – 12 noon. You’ll hear from city and community leaders, public safety and utility officials, state representatives, developers, and your own neighbors and friends who have news to share. You can join (or chair) one of our subcommittees. You can help us help Pittsburgh.
Changes are happening. Most of them are good. Join us for coffee and donuts and let’s talk about them.
The Pittsburgh neighborhood is an historically black community chartered in 1883. Bordered by the Norfolk Southern Railroad line, it's one of Atlanta oldest neighborhoods, and was founded around 1876, about ten years after the Civil War. It's called "Pittsburgh" because the industrial area, and smokiness of the railroad yard reminded some of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Pittsburgh forms a triangle centered on McDaniel Street. The Western border is Metropolitan Parkway; the northern border is Ralph David Abernathy; the eastern border is an angle along the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks from McDaniel Street down to University Avenue along Pryor Street. The southern border is south of the Atlanta Beltline below University Avenue.
Becoming a member is easy! Join us at Pittman Park Recreation Center, 950 Garibaldi St. SW, Atlanta, 30310 on the first Saturday of the month at 10 am. Grab coffee and a donut from our sponsor table and ask for our treasurer. Current dues is $12 for residents, $50 for businesses. As of 2/1/2020 dues will be $25 for residents and $300 for businesses. All are welcome!
The PNA needs friends and neighbors and business men and women to volunteer and commit to serve on our sub-committees. Help us make our neighborhood the best it can be.
We can not make a positive impact in and on Pittsburgh without your help and your donations. You can help by sponsoring the monthly coffee and donuts, chairing a committee, or volunteering for neighborhood code enforcement and clean-ups. Thank you for your time and donations.
